Lifetime premiere’s The Trip to Bountiful on March 8th, originally based on American playwright and screenwriter Horton Foote’s Tony nominated play. The film stars Cicely Tyson, Vanessa Williams, Blair Underwood and Keke Palmer.
Set in the 1940s, the film tells the story of an elderly woman, Carrie Watts (Cicely Tyson), who is determined to return home one last time. Living in Houston, Texas with her overprotective son (Blair Underwood) and daughter-in-law (Vanessa Williams), they will not let her travel alone.
Determined to get back to her home town, Bountiful, Watts escapes her relatives and tries to catch a train but finds out no trains go to Bountiful anymore. Instead Watts catches a bus to a near by town. While on her voyage she befriends a young girl (Keke Palmer) traveling alone, and reminisces about her younger years and grieves her lost relatives. What starts out as an ordinary trip soon becomes an inspiring and life changing journey of discovery.
